Twenty-two-year-old Valley City State University student Amber Glatt vanished on the Fourth of July, prompting aerial searches. She contacted her mother five days later from the Grand Canyon. Her mother says Glatt has had recurring amnesia since suffering a head injury years ago.

Glatt said after she lost her memory she met a man in a bar who let her tag along on his trip to the Grand Canyon. She said the man eventually saw online that she'd been reported missing and alerted her.

Glatt said she regained most of her memory on Wednesday.
